1999 Summer Course Award in Aging
The Ellison Medical Foundation funded a three-week summer course on the Molecular Biology of Aging at the Marine Biological Laboratory, Woods Hole, MA for the years 1999 through 2001. The course was directed by Drs. Leonard Guarente and Douglas C. Wallace. Funds cover all expenses for attending students (graduate students, post-docs, junior faculty, and senior investigators). Morning lectures in Model Systems (yeast and C. elegans), DNA Mutation and Repair, Telomeres and Cellular Senescence, Mammalian Aging, and Evolutionary Considerations are followed by laboratory exercises.
